Update on TNA’s Civil Lawsuit Brought Against Scott Steiner

– On Friday, a judge in Nashville postponed the planned start of TNA’s civil lawsuit brought against Scott Steiner. The trial was set to begin later this month. A pre-trial conference is now scheduled for November 20th while the trial itself is scheduled to begin December 8th.

Back in 2012, TNA filed a breach of contract and defamation of character suit against Steiner. TNA claimed Steiner’s Twitter rants against Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, TNA as a company and others were in violation of his contract. Steiner claimed he was just speaking for the wrestlers and for the good of the fans.

Steiner counter-sued TNA and claimed that he could not have been in violation because his TNA deal had expired and he turned down a new deal. Steiner’s counter-suit was later dropped but there’s still a separate lawsuit going on where he claims he was injured at a TNA live event against Jeff Hardy, who he alleges was in no condition to perform.

    i think it’s time for TNA to drop this case. Hogan’s back in the WWE, Bischoff may be on his way out of TNA or has already parted ways, and what ever slenderest thing said by him has already been said by other ex employees in the past that had worked for TNA or disgruntled current employees who worked for TNA or the fans too.
